FFC01 - Colour Challenge

The wait is finally over... it's time for our very first challenge here at the Festive Friday Challenge Blog! I am excited and terrified all at once, but with such an amazing group of ladies behind me, I am hopeful you'll be inspired to join along with us!

Meredith MacRitchie
And this month, we are joined by the amazingly talented Elena Roussakis from her blog, Just ME.


I drink lots of coffee. Lots. I’ve been happily married for nine years. I’m a 30-something mom of three kids under the age of seven. When I’m not playing dress-up or cooking or cleaning the same messes for the 26th time in the same day, I like to make pretty things.

Here is her stunning creation:


Thank you so much to Elena for helping us kick off our first challenge with her *stunning* creation. Isn't it gorgeous?

This week we're offering a prize to anyone who plays along!


Some embellishments and stamps to help you get on top of your holiday crafting!

Now it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project utilizing the above shades as your main colours and link us up below! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until February 13, 2013 at 11:59PST. We will post our favourites when the next challenge goes live!

This is a great idea. I'm thinking of making Christmas cards all year long because after 2012 Christmas ended, I didn't want to stop making Christmas cards. It will also avoid the crazy rush during the holidays.
